Quantitative Data Analysis with SPSS for Windows
A Guide for Social Scientists
Routledge – 1997 – 336 pages
Quantitative Data Analysis with SPSS for Windows explains statistical tests using the latest version of SPSS, the most widely used computer package for analysing quantitative data. Using the same formula-free, non-technical approach as the highly successful non-windows version, it assumes no previous familiarity with either statistics or computing, and takes the reader step-by-step through each of the techniques for which SPSS for Windows can be used, including:
simple and multiple regression
multivariate analysis of variance and covariance
The book also contains a comprehensive range of exercises with answers, and covers issues such as sampling, statistical significance, and the selection of appropriate tests.
The book is clear, succinct and accessible. A very useful text for beginners. - Josephine Hutt, University of Staffordshire
